About the exhibition

This exhibition is a project in character, has been conceived as processual and can never be seen as complete in the sense of a presentation of masterpieces. In this case the aesthetic object is secondary, while the functional context is key – an exhibition as a laboratory, as a studio, the works as models where cognitive knowledge and aesthetic experience blend.

 

The essential subject is time – the recording and visualisation of it and one’s highly varied and subjective perception of the same. Real locations – a castle in eastern Styria or an island near Australia – are starting points for speculation, mystification, historicity. In this way, what is certain encounters what is assumed. Zwischenland is the title Walde has given his latest project, which he realises with the illustrator Lenz Mosbacher. The chequered history of the place, as well as the zones of early history in this area which have remained unlit, result in a dense narrative that sheds light on the myths of settled existence and migration. This project will flow into extensive graphic fiction towards the end of the exhibition. The precondition for experiencing this show as an experience and as an intriguing broadening of one’s horizon is an active public, one that researches, reads and poses questions, and can be integrated at certain points by actual participation.
